Fishing report.


The water clarity is very low with he high winds. Today there was not one boat around.

A friend was out yesterday and caught 1 48 inch musky on a jig. These guys fished hard and are good fishermen.

The bite can be tough for a day or so until water clarity improves. Bright colors , baits that vibrate help in theses conditions. Even paddle tails,  zip lures, Rippin raps are some baits to use.

Sunday I fished noon til 8 pm.

I caught a bunch of walleyes. Near dark and after I caught some females. The walleye fishing will only get better. 

I have dates open in March and April . De Pere and other trophy jigging locations on the Green Bay.

Hey guys got a few questions for yah. Will be taking the new boat out this weekend up here with a buddy. New to the water completely. Mainly asking for any tips safety wise, any areas to watch out for, dam conditions ( im from stevens point where the dam controls whether or not you can put a boat in) and any general tips on spots to look for and try. Also if anyone has a recent water temp that would be helpful. Thanks and tight lines.

To "rngrwpn" in response to your question about what your doing wrong. Believe me it's not just trying to copy what the next boat is getting them on. Even if they cut the lure from their pole and gave it to you would it work. What I mean is, yes lure selection or (profile) is important, but there are many other important factors. For instance, I believe boat control is as crucial as type of bait. You have to have your bait in the water column that looks natural with the way other bait fish are flowing with the current. Another key factor is confidence, you know they are there in numbers so believe in yourself. Putting all of the pieces together for what works for you and you alone. Believe me it works.

Caught a 18 inch walleye on the concrete walkway area. Have not tried the walleye deck. But last year a friend of mine caught a 33 incher there. In the mouth legal. Let it go too. For those who are jelly they can't catch a huge walleye from their boat go home to your wife already cry to her not on this site. There is a trick not to snag fish it's just cut off the hook on the treble facing the line. And leave the back two that way you don't hurt any spawning walleye and you at least have two hooks exposed. Hope this report helps. Remember cry to your wife/woman not lake links

Out yesterday and Sunday - water was clear enough to see the prop on the big motor - clearer than i've ever seen the Fox. 


Fished 11 - 2

Put 2 in the boat and lost 3.

Fished from the drop at the dam down to railroad bridge (long drift)

Tried vertical while drifting, casting and retrieving on spot lock, tried depths from 7-28'

Marked good fish on the edge of the channel on Sunday, couldnt get them to bite. Didnt mark much yesterday, but got those 4 to bite. 1 came from 28'FOW other 3 were in 9FOW.

Not sure what I am doing wrong versus the guy with 30+ fish yesterday. Using fatheads and many colors/weights across the guys in the boat for jigs.

I don't know about most guys here,  but for me, I couldn't care less about a report. if the water is NOT brown mud or super windy going up the river,  you should go fish.  If conditions are good,  go.  If they are bad stay home.

I've not once gone to depere and not caught fish.  People know this,  even on good days i see people sitting around twiddling their thumbs.  If you aren't getting fish by the damn (which i never fish),  go down river.  there are holes and flats all the way down to the mouth.  All the fish don't spawn at the damn....it's pretty simple stuff.  Keep moving till you find them.  All the people begging for reports it's sickening.  Go fish people.  if you want to know if the river is MUD,  look at the port of green bays web cam.  You can see plain as the sky is blue.  If it's mud,  don't waste your time.  it will clear in a few days and be back to normal.  That's the best piece of information you'll get from here,  use it.

I fished from 4-7pm I was targeting walleye from shore, but ended up with a fat white fish and 1 small 15 inch walleye (I did not Keep). It was a Grind to get a bite. Any slow day fishing is a better day then a day at work!

Fished Sunday from 830-145 and took a bit to find them.  1/4oz and 3/8oz in bright colors tipped with a shiner n stinger.  Most fish on the stinger as they are very light bites longlining these fun to catch eyes!  wind was harsh and made it cold.  no docks in and launch parking pretty full.  no big females today and fishing was just OK with over 30 + fish landed and 6 fat whitefish for the fryer.  be back tomorrow in the wind.
